It’s been a sad day for UK comics: iconic children’s magazine, The Dandy, is under threat of closure.
And while there are other comics still out there (such as the marvellous Phoenix Comic which includes our favourite comic strip, Gary’s Garden by Gary Northfield), it’s still sad that it might be about to close.
So in tribute to our childhood, here’s a round up of some Dandy-inspired knitting patterns and other Dandy goodness!
- Knitted Desperate Dan toy by Alan Dart (knitted by Mummy Rivett)
- Bananaman Fan Club T-Shirt, £19.99 Truffle Shuffle.
- Desperate Dan: Intarsia Knitting Pattern Booklet by Gary Kennedy
- Desperate Dan Motif Knitting Pattern by Sirdar
Let us know if you find any other good stuff! Some crochet Dandy patterns would be amazing! Where is Korky the Cat?!
